- Yakubu Aiyegbeni is not happy with the Super Eagles coach Gernot Rohr
- The former Super Eagles star has called for the sack of the Franco-German tactician
- Yakubu stated that the manager is not good enough and should be allowed to go
Former Super Eagles striker Yakubu Aiyegbeni has branded the current coach of the Nigerian national football team Gernot Rohr as one of the worst coaches in Nigeria.
This is coming in the wake of the home and away draw with the Leone Stars of Sierra Leone in the AFCON 2021 qualifying series.
Nigeria let a four-goal-lead slip in the first leg allowing the visitors pull magical four goals back to draw 4-4 at the Samuel Ogbemudia Stadium in Benin on November 13, before managing a 0-0 draw in Freetown four days later.
Yakubu blasted the tactician saying he is not good enough to manage the Super Eagles and calls for his sack. He said:
“The coach is not good enough, let him go,” Aiyegbeni told Lagos Talks FM as cited in The Nation newspapers.
“The coach is not good enough, no clue. Gernot Rohr is one of the worst coaches in our history. He is not good enough.”
In the same vein, Sports minister Sports Sunday Dare also lamented the Super Eagles’ double-draws with the Leone Stars and has questioned the competencies of coach Gernot Rohr.
The minister in a tweet hinted at the possible sacking of the tactician anytime soon.
He immediately departed for Italy as he returned to his base to undergo further tests and his club Napoli confirmed he is undergoing physiotherapy following a dislocated right shoulder.
